It's hard to find the right piano teacher. But when I found Emily I knew I needed to look no further. I have been taking piano lessons on and off 20 years and within the first few lessons she taught me elements of theory and artistry that I had never seen from a teacher. She is patient, thoughtful and an expert in her craft. She listens and selects pieces that are inspirational to my taste and builds a curriculum to my skill level (intermediate) and pushes me just enough to help me feel confident while still learning new skills.

I have been taking electric guitar lessons for a 18 months and Samantha is an excellent teacher for players from any level. She has a depth of technical knowledge, different styles of playing and most importantly, she makes it fun and interesting. It is rare to find a skilled guitar player who is also a skilled teacher, and Samantha is both.

I started taking his piano lessons only about a month ago, but it''s been such a great joy to work with him. He constantly assesses my weaknesses and strengths, and plans my lessons accordingly. He also listens carefully to what I like and what I want to do, too. I live a bit far from his studio, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend him!

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

I took piano lessons from Geoff 2 years ago and unfortunately due to financial issues had to quit. For the months that I was able to be taught by him, I loved how patient he was with me as well as the materials he gave me. I would definitely return to him if I was able to do so in the future

Alfonso is a terrific teacher and has been very helpful in getting me started. I am a complete beginner and Alfonso has been wonderful in answering my questions and helping me pick out my first guitar. His lessons are fun and packed with things to practice on during the week. After each lesson he sends a detailed email reviewing what we covered and what to practice on. He is very responsive to questions via email and offers helpful advice and encouragement. I would highly recommend Alfonso!

Helen, was AMAZING, she taught my 6 yr daughter her first piano lesson. We were going to try out a few different teachers, but after meeting her, I have no interest going anywhere else. Thank you for being so friendly and so talented! <3 A few things that were important to me were, 1. She could connect with my 6 year old. 2. That she could teach syllabus. 3. That she has opportunities for her students to perform during the year. She met all three of those. :)

I have had three guitar lessons with Cameron and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and positive. As a beginner guitar student I would highly recommend him if you've toyed with the idea of learning but have been intimidated or put it off for any other reason. Cameron presents the information/exercises in just the right amounts for me thereby preventing frustration with the material and instead increasing my confidence and enjoyment.

She is very patient; my daughter loves having her as a piano teacher. It is very convenient to have her come to the house for a reasonable fee. She is prompt and flexible, and easy to get ahold of. I can't wait for my son to start lessons with her. We are also looking forward to the new studio in the works.

Austin is a fantastic guitar instructor. He is patient with students and produces results. My son went from a beginner to an intermediate within a few months. Hire him!

About

Music theory is fun! I tutor music theory at levels ranging from beginning middle school to advanced college undergraduate level. This includes aural skills, solfeggio, sight-singing and a custom curriculum that's tailored to each individual student. I have my own books and don't require the student to purchase anything but time, as I provide my own exercises. Having an instrument on hand can help students, as it provides a direct link from the abstract rule to the concrete sound, but it is not required.

About

At 14 years of age, I picked up my first guitar; having no idea what to try first, I took to the Internet to find the right path. I quickly learned that while the Internet can be a very useful tool to learn a large abundance of things, there is nothing like having someone sit in front of you and show you the ropes. At 24 years of age now, I commit most of my time to my job as a race timing technician, but on the side, I love getting the chance to open the instrumental eyes of a new musician. I've played in several bands, taken several music courses in college, and still take pride in all of my instruments. My lessons generally start off with an acoustic guitar; if you do not have one, I can provide one for rent. I go into types of guitars (12 strings, bass, electric, etc.), and I provide various scales and chord diagrams to work on, on your own.

About

For the past 20 years, I have been developing my craft as a musician. I have been formally trained in voice, piano, drums, and guitar. During college, many people approached me and asked if I would teach their daughter or son guitar. I naturally became a guitar teacher. Many of my guitar students have gone on to create their own original songs. With my experience of writing over 100 songs for many different genres, I am able to draw out the songwriting abilities of my students. Outside of teaching, I have been the music director of a church, written music for film producers, and performed all around North America. I look forward to helping you or your child learn guitar.
